Rachel’s season 4 plot at NYADA in New York is taking on a life of its own – what with Rachel’s “sex fest” Britney Spears dance number and new love interest, Brody (played by Dean Geyer).

But Rachel Berry’s new life in New York won’t be all sunshine and rainbows. Unlike her relationship with her old glee club teacher Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison), Rachel will be at odds with her dance instructor, played by Glee cast newcomer, Kate Hudson – Cassandra, who according to Jane Lynch (Sue Sylvester) via Max Updates is “mean [and] petty” but has a “heart”, and will be giving Rachel a little bit of grief this season.

“She’s hard-ass,” says Glee co-creator Brad Falchuk. “And she has her own demons. She works by negative.”

Entertainment Weekly released an exclusive photo of Kate Hudson’s character in action – and show creator Ryan Murphy also shared another one of Kate with his followers on Twitter.
